  1. Place chicken breast side up on a rack in a roasting pan. In a bowl, combine 1/4 cup wine or broth, lime wedges, garlic, bay leaf and thyme. Pour into cavity of chicken. Pour remaining wine or broth in roasting pan. Sprinkle chicken with paprika. Loosely tent with foil. Bake at 375 degrees F for 45 minutes, basting occasionally. Remove foil; bake 40-45 minutes longer or until juices run clear and a meat thermometer reads 180 degrees F, basting occasionally. Add additional wine or broth to pan of liquid evaporates.
  2. Discard bay leaf and lime wedges. Remove chicken to a serving platter and let stand for 10 minutes before carving. Pour drippings and loosened brown bits into a measuring cup. Skim fat. In a saucepan, combine the cornstarch, bouillon and sherry or juice until smooth. Gradually stir in drippings. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve gravy with chicken.

Although the gravy was tasty~hint of lime and wine; however, the chicken recipe was just fair. Definitely needs salt and other seasonings. Not sure if I'd use this recipe again.

Try this.... cut slits and put cloves of garlic under skin before cooking

Shake Adobo seasoning instead of salt and pepper...wonderful! Oh and added potatoes in the roasting pan.
